The recent suspension of four or
five Ruilding and Loan associations
in Knoxville, and the decision of the
Supreme Court in regard to them,
have suggested to the minds of some
persons the question, "How does it
affect our home institution, the
Maury County Ruilding and Loan
For the enlightenment of those
concerned a 11i;kai,i representative
sought an interview with Mr. W. S.
Fleming, attorney for the associa
tion, and questioned him in regard
to the muiter.
"Do the recent decisions of the Su
preme Cou't i.i regard to Ruilding
and Loan associations, about which
much lias been published in various
newspapers, apply to or ailed as
sociations conducted on the plan of
the Maury County Ruilding and
Loan association?" the reporter
"No," replied Mr. Fleming; "those
decisions do not apply to any as
sociation conducted on the plan fol
lowed by the Maury County Ruild
ing and Loan association, and usual
ly followed by all local associations.
Many national Ruilding and Loan
associations, organized under the
laws of Teunessee, are affected by
these decisions very seriously, be
cause, as a rule, they fix the prem
iums at which their money is loaned
and do not lend it to the highest
bidder in open competition, as re
quired by the statutes of Tennessee.
"The Supreme Court last fajl held
in two cases that the terms of the
statutes must be followed and the
loan made in open competition to
the stock-holder bidding the highest
premium, in order to make a valid
contract. This was no new prin
ciple, the same decision having been
already readied in other States.
"The business of the Maury Coun
ty Ruilding and Loan association,
in making its loans, has been con
ducted strictly in accordance with
the statutes, as every one knows who
has ever attended the monthly meet
ings, when the money is loaned.
When this is done the-courts have
universally held in this State and
most other States that the transac
tion between the association and the
borrowing stockholder is legal 'and
binding, and that such borrower
must settle according to the terms of
"The recent decision of the Su
preme Court in effect ratifies and ap
proves the case of Patterson vs.
Workingmen's Association (14th
Lea, p. 077), which holds the law as
above stated; that is, that where the
statute is pursued in making the
loans the transaction is legal.
"The result of all the decisions in
Tennessee fortifies the position of
those associations which conduct
their business in accordance with
the statutes of Tennessee, and only
hold those loans tainted with usury
which are made as by some associa
tions at a fixed premium, not arrived
at by open biddings, but fixed by the
omcers ol the association."

in the business properly. Below I

m: wt Mit: la reply to vonr favor of
the Itii h, I hfg leave to sav that, accord-
ing to my information, the creamery at
Pulaski is regarded almost as a neces
sity by the fanners of tides County. In
conversation with one of the most
enterprising and successful ones, a few
days ago, lie informed me that his re
ceipts from sale of milk averaged about
niteen dollars a month. 1 think he
keeps about ten cows, and he savs they
are very little additional expense, as he
raises the feed on the farm, and the
hands who do the other farm work,
attend to the milking.
The business of' the creamery is
steadily Increasing, and each year adds
to the number of farmers who' lind it a
profitable market for milk. The money
distributed monthly among them b'v
this institution, In 'in many instances
enough to pay the ordinary running
expenses of the farm.
Very truly your friend,
